Question OT: Audio Question Again

I am putting a couple amps in my boat and will be running some decent power....a 775W MTX digital (6500D) for the subs and a 325W MTX (6304-4 channel) to the mids/tweets. I want to add a capacitor to make sure the amps don't run out of juice but I noticed that the instructions for the capacitor say to not ground the cap the same place as the amp ground. Well, needless to say all the grounds for the entire system are going to be going to the battery(s). Would it be better to ground the cap to the other battery and the amps to the first? Looking for someone to help shed a little light on this for me. Thanks in advance!!!!!!

Dave

Dave,

The only thing I can think of is to avoid "buzzing" in your speakers. I have my amp and capacitor ground to the same place and it sounds great, but some capacitors could be different.

That is for Car aplications. Boats you have to go to the battery so make sure you run its own ground back to the battery. You will be fine.

I have a special running on 1 Farad capacitors with digital voltage display for $89.99. That is probably the lowest price you will find anywhere in the country.
